Remagined

Bryan Singer is reportedly set to helm yet another Battlestar Galactica reboot.

"Insiders have said the feature is to be a complete reimagining and will stand separately." Reimagining a show that was super-popular and just ended this year is all sorts of ridiculous. Even if it's aiming to focus on the original show, that's still reimagining source material that was just reimagined to great success. That's more than enough "reimagination" for anyone.

Quite.

Well, that certainly didn't stop director "McG" from reimagining the Terminator francise. Still experiencing nightmares over that sequel's desecration of the original concept.

Meh. I wasn't too pleased initially when I first heard that they were going to "reboot" Battlestar Galactica. I've had rather enough of Hollywood types destroying the TV icons of my youth. I was pleasantly surprised therefore, by the first couple of seasons. Then the new series inevitably jumped the shark and I stopped watching. If they make a new movie, and it's based on the original 1978-79 series, I'll plunk down an Andrew Jackson to see it. Particularly if it has Richard Hatch as Commander Apollo.
